 Hi everyone just wondering if anyone has the same symptoms as me . Today I went to the specialist physio for a check up on my pelvic floor and I explained I had what felt like a really thick bumpy scar that kind of slightly hangs out of my vagina and it's really uncomfortable when I'm sat too long or as a pillion rider on motorbike, but mainly during sex. She examined me and said it was the excess skin from the surgery it hadn't been trimmed off as is the usual procedure. She hasn't come across this before and thinks it may need a small procedure to rectify it at some point . for now we are working at strengthening my muscles to try and support it . Let me know if any one has had the same or similar ... thanks xx

      I had anterior and posterior repair. The physio said the operation has been a success just this excess skin, and I've healed well internally so am ok to have sex etc . I followed all the advice on here and will continue to . Maybe it's just early days still x

      How long did it take to heal when you could have sex without pain. Where you pretty tight after the procedure??? Now I am told I need a posterior repair with perinealplasty.

      It was probably 10 weeks post op when I first had sex it's more uncomfortable than painful and I had to try different positions. I don't feel any tighter but have bought a kegal machine to help with pelvic floor,muscles as physio has said they are weak .my main issue is with the bulge that is at the entrance to my vagina as it is the excess skin left over after surgery . It is uncomfortable , so I may need to see some about that at some point. Try to use lubricants they may help .
